It wasn’t just actual cars that turned me into a budding automotive enthusiast, it was the gift of Legos that did it as well. Yes, I loved staring at my parents’ cars in the garage. But when I got home, it was hot wheels being parked into the houses and police stations that I had built as well. My favorite kit by far, was a Formula One car, with a removable engine cover and actual rack-and-pinion steering. I thought it was the work of engineering genius.
Now, Lego has brought Audi motorsports cars and the best of Ford for the budding enthusiast.
"“The LEGO Group is one of the world’s top toy companies, and is loved by children and adults around the globe,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas. “Many of us grew up playing with LEGO, so this is a dream project for all of us – including our engineers.”The 185-piece Mustang kit includes a time board and race driver. The 664-piece F-150 Raptor set includes a well-equipped garage, trailer, a drag racing Christmas tree and Model A hot rod, plus a crew of Ford workers to ensure top-quality work."
Even the Audi models look incredibly accurate considering the scale.
Personally, I am a bit jealous. I would have loved to have an all Ford garage with the Mustang and the Raptor, as well as the Audi Motorsports racing team coming out of my lego garage. These well-engineered kits should help bring up automotive passion in the decades to come.
